Finnish Team Song


(repeat every two lines)

Siivolan Matti and Laatikainen Vesa
were playing a game of go
If you try to kill my only group
you have to fight a ko

Avalanche-joseki never trembles
and taisha never rusts
with tsuke-tesuji you hit the nose
if he still resists

Taisha-Vesa was the first
and the next was Siivolan Matti
Lounelan Olli from Kontula
was the third of the same kind

First we broke the ladder
and then we broke the wall
Taisha-Vesa was the forerunner
since he was the tallest

You'd better not sing about taisha
as all you stones are dead
there is one lonely back stone
standing on their grave
